Product Description
The 9th installment in our series (6 mins long): How to Leave on Time and NEVER Take Papers Home Again ... In which we show you how breaking your tasks up into similar batches will save you tons of time. Each discussion tackles a topic that helps us move steps closer to this elusive goal.

Typical tasks in a teacher's day ...

* Planning
* Prepping resources
* Making photocopies
* Grading
* Sorting
* Office
* Emails
* Phone Calls
* Collaboration
* Bathroom
* Eating

Can you think of any more?

They're jumping out at us all day long screaming at us to do them now.
We have to be strategic about when to do what things to save us time and focus. One of the best, secret strategies is CHUNKING/BATCHING.

Batching means doing similar things in batches, or chunks.

* Answer all email in one sitting.
* Walk all office trips at one time.
* Make all phone calls back to back.

Save all collaboration discussions for the same trip out of your classroom. You'll do them all faster because you have to go talk to everyone in a smaller time frame, and you have a reason to finish each conversation.

Conversation of the Day: What area of your teacher life do you need to batch first?
